Mid-Century Modern(ish)

I'm not usually a super fan of West Elm... it is usually overpriced for a rehabber like me. When they have a sale, it is so on, though! Their stuff is super cute, and even if it is outta your price range, it is worth getting the catalogs for inspiration. A few of my favorite... Continue Reading →

La Vie en Rose

Over the weekend, I spent a couple of glorious hours (okay, maybe not hours, but I could have) at the Exposition Park Rose Garden in Downtown LA.It is quite impressive, with a huge fountain, gazebos, and over 20,000 rose bushes. It didn't feel like LA, which is great if you live in LA.At one point,... Continue Reading →

Maybe I'm a little dramatic, but this blue pine table from One Kings Lane is the stuff I dream about at night! The vintage-y goodness of the shape, the colors, the chippy paint... okay, I'm drooling. Even better? It's on clearance!!! I love it so so much, but unfortunately am not on the market for... Continue Reading →

Mid Century Modern Makeover

Maybe I'm a little behind, but I can't get enough Mid Century Modern furniture right now! I've always liked lots of pattern, flowy curtains, and a more romantic feel in general but sometimes it's good to step outside the box. I doubt I will ever like a totally pared down utilitarian space (I need to... Continue Reading →

Santa Fe Style

It is especially magical in the Spring and Summer. I just love the sunflowers everywhere and the rainbows after an afternoon storm. The hiking is great, the... Continue Reading →

Fairfax Flea Market Finds

A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles is at the Fairfax Flea Market. In the parking lot of the high school on Fairfax and Melrose, this market has live music, good food (tacos, crepes), and lots of stalls with all kinds of goodies. Of course my favorite items are the ones... Continue Reading →

Speaking of One Kings Lane…

I am obsessed with this antique fruitwood and toile fauteuil featured today. At $1K a pop, it's kinda a lot, but it is just soooo beautiful. Love the clean lines, the details, and the color of the fabric with the stain of the wood. It would be pretty easy to get this look on a diy project... Continue Reading →

Getting Inspired

If you're anything like me, you can scroll through sites for hours and hours to find inspiration. Wait, is that only me?Mayyybe I'm a bit obsessed. I love going to new stores, looking at catalogs, and, yes, I do sometimes pay more attention to the props than the models in magazines. I've been known to... Continue Reading →
